I would have thought last place would be Rear Admiral!
It is a lifelong ambition... yes...
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
So this is life... I bring two new fellows to SOL and all my SOL friends have to tell them about me is my Scow title...

:)
In future when you address me you need to stand at attention... neatly and a salute will be required as when addressing any officer of a fleet... ;-)

What-what-what??? A flee(t)ing 'ossifer' with an angry bar-maid chasing him..? With what is it that you wish to be saluted? An upraised finger...?

Or perhaps worse?....two upraised fingers?

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Hehe! I guess a thumb would be mostly appreciated ! :-)
On WW's request, after checking my references, "Commander" has been added between Lieutenant and Captain.

For some reason, this rating had been swept under the carpet...

Corrected ! :-)
Not wishing to complicate matters needlessly, I take pen in hand to communicate with Your Lordship the apparent lack of a most important rank in the Navel (the spelling is deliberate) Hierarchy, one that forms the boundary between the "Un-promotable" and the "future leaders of our maritime endeavors", namely that of "LIEUTENANT-COMMANDER". It is a rank that provides for the smooth transition from lowly, and unwashed, Lieutenant to the exalted rank of Commander-"Of whom great things are expected".
I beg to remain, Sir, your most obedient servant,
Landsman--late Sub-Lieutenant, of Her Majesty's Royal Canadian Navy (Reserve)--Rod.

Rod, as I checked my reference yesterday and as I wished to stick (more or less) to the noapoleonic wars ratings, i can tell you for sure that there was no Lieutnant-Commander at that time.

But, as we already added Rear Admiral (after Scots) because the idea was good. And because I added Vice admiral because one must be vicious to reach that rate.... why not add Lieutnant-Commander because you ask ? Your reasons for asking this rating being very... reasonable...

Lieutnant-Commander added !
Rules 6 and 7 added too. :-)

Elba Rendezvous 2022
Another new race in the SOL calendar. This time a sprint along the route of the classic regatta triangle proposed by Renegade. The theatre of our struggle will be Golfo Di Follonica with its start and finish at Piombino. More buoys were set up in front of Porto Azzurro on Elba Island and next to Punta Ala. One lap of 38 NM will be done with the help of Beneteau Figaro. Carefully plan the direction to start 😊 and "Let the force be with you."

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
